Two superpower arms negotiators -- one a witty but cynical Russian veteran, the other an earnest and idealistic American newcomer -- meet for an informal stroll after long, frustrating hours at the bargaining table in Lee Blessing's thoughtful drama A Walk in the Woods
. Filled with unexpected humor and extraordinary humanity, it's an absorbing, revealing and brilliant debate on the eternal hope and relentless futility of high-stakes politics. This 1988 Tony-nominated play was inspired by the true story of two visionaries who had the courage to forge a nuclear weapons agreement without the support of their governments. Nearly 25 years later, the tale remains as relevant as ever for its depiction of the politics that divide us and the humanity that unites us. This production boasts the Drama Desk Award-winning Kathleen Chalfant (Wit, House of Cards
) and Paul Niebanck as the two leads.
